    Looking for a swimming pool and/or swimming club

    I'm looking for a swimming pool at a reasonably priced club where I can do laps year round. The public pools are beautiful, but the one I tried was extremely crowded with lots of slow swimmers. Many of the private clubs are prohibitively expensive. Also I've heard there are lots of swim clubs in HK but I haven't had any luck finding them. I'd be interested in a masters training program if that was available. Any direction appreciated!

    Where abouts? If you consider TST then YMCA is good. You will get 3-4 per lane but not too much trouble. You can get 10 visits for a reasonable price or around $1700 for 3 months to pool/gym.

    I guess it depends on how you define prohibitively expensive but the ladies recreation club has an excellent pool and and active swim club. Entrance fee used to be around 30K which is quite reasonable for private clubs. The HKFC also has a nice pool open year round with a swim club and you can get in for 25K if you participate in sports such as HK, Rugby or Squash...

    With both these clubs of course, you get a lot more than just a nice pool...

    The tri clubs have swims in open water and pools:
